DeMar DeRozan cooled off in a big way on Tuesday, shooting 3-of-16 to finish a loss with just eight points, three rebounds, five assists and two steals.
Not a great start for the reigning Eastern Conference Player of the Week, but he’s more than earned some slack. DeRozan has only been kept to single digits twice all season but at least brought some assists and steals to the table tonight. He doesn’t tend to be held down for long, so don’t shy away from DeRozan going forward.
